From Access Maths, a brilliant selection of 90 Algebra Questions, Progressive Overload-Algebra is ideal for revision.

Have a look at all the other Access Maths revision resources too.


TES Resources
From one of my favourite resource authors, try Building Blocks from Andy Lutwyche.

A great idea, Andy!

CrashMaths gold

CrashMaths Edexcel Practice AS paper – gold

A recent addition from CrashMaths, Gold Edexcel AS Practice papers.


ATM Open Resources
For, activities, videos and more, have a look at ATM’s Open Resources. ATM provides many free resources on their website for teachers to download or use online in the classroom. There are many free resources available, note the menu on the right, these are excellent in their own right and also provide an excellent way of seeing what ATM has to offer. I do like GeoBoard tasks, try for example Board Task 3B.

If you like GeoBoards, see GeoBoard Activities, where I have given information on free online GeoBoards and resources.

Try ATM’s Puzzle Page, where you will find many examples of their puzzles, or get some free posters for your walls.

On the subject of Geometry, have a look at Don Stewards great slides from his recent London ATM/MA session. https://donsteward.blogspot.com/2019/03/geometry-session.html?m=1.

I’m looking forward to attending the next session, Jonny Griffiths on Further Maths RISPS, https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/an-a-level-further-maths-special-with-jonny-griffiths-tickets-56832977967

The content of Core Pure for Further Mathematics is common to all the examination boards, so a very useful document for any Further Mathematics teacher.
